Leaked: New Photos Show Heavily Updated 2021 Lincoln Nautilus

Leaked photo purports to show the 2021 Lincoln Nautilus with all-new interior

  • Big changes for best-selling Lincoln

  • Updates bring Nautilus in-line with brand’s other models


New photos that are said to be from a Ford employee in Oakville show a big and well-needed interior upgrade coming to the Lincoln Nautilus for 2021. And that could mean upgrades to the Ford Edge as well, built at the same plant.

We first saw the photo on GMInsideNews, but it’s been floating around for most of a day, and we believe was originally posted to Facebook. The photo clearly shows much of an all-new dashboard and center console for the midsize Nautilus, one that brings the model back into line with the rest of the largely new Lincoln lineup.

Like a smaller version of the Aviator (or a bigger Corsair), this picture shows a horizontal line of shiny trim splitting the dash into upper and lower sections, with a screen mounted to the top. That screen looks like it could be 12-inches or so wide, and there is a fully digital dashboard displayed as well.

Below the center vents is an all-new HVAC control system, again much like that found in other Lincolns and a massive improvement over the waterfall-like center stack of the 2020 model with its push-button shift buttons lining the left-hand side of the infotainment.

It also looks like a new infotainment system for Nautilus, giving the appearance of Sync4 in the Aviator. A new steering wheel doesn’t quite match the other Lincolns when it comes to the thumb buttons, but the airbag does look right.

With an all-new model not expected before 2024, these upgrades should do a great deal to keep the Nautilus as Lincoln’s best seller and to help it compete in an increasingly tough segment.
